Didn't make it to the I Made It! Market?  If not, then you missed an awesome weekend full of handcrafted wonder . Set in the up and coming shopping district of Bakery Square, the I Made It! Market celebrated its fifth year of displaying the newest and most innovative artists of the area.  This year was chalk-full of clever little baubles, eco-friendly goods, and affordable (and very wearable) jewelery - just in time for holiday shopping! This wasn't your normal "craft show" where there are endless aisles of landscape photography and astronomically priced glassware - no, this was an exciting and upbeat market with interesting items that serve good and useful purposes.What I loved best about the artists and the items I saw at the I Made It! Market, was how fearless and unconventional all of it was. There was no holding back with these artists, from clay ear gauges, to Satanic dress patches these artists each had their own message and signature style.  If you couldn't make it to this I Made It! then for sure don't miss the next one on February 4, 2012 at Southside Works.
